A new off-Broadway production of Talley’s Folly, the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Lanford Wilson, will complete the Roundabout Theater Company’s 2012-13 season. Previews for the revival begin February 8, 2013, and opening night is set for March 5. Michael Wilson (The Best Man) will direct the production, which will run at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. No casting has been announced at this time.
Set at the end of World War II, Talley's Folly follows Matt Friedman, a Jewish immigrant who has spent his life keeping others at a distance. Matt returns to the small town where he first met Sally Talley, a nurse with deep misgivings about America’s future. After a lifetime of believing they’ll never truly belong in the world around them, Matt has worked up the courage to ask Sally for her hand, and convince her that they do belong in society and with each other. Talley's Folly first opened on Broadway on February 20, 1980. Starring Judd Hirsch and Trisch Hawkins, the production received five Tony Award nominations.
The rest of Roundabout’s current season includes the currently previewing If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet, Cyrano de Bergerac, Bad Jews, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Picnic, The Unavoidable Disappearance of Tom Durnin and The Big Knife.
